With 685,491 aircraft movements in 2007, it is the third busiest airport in the world in terms of aircraft movements. In terms of passenger traffic, it is the seventh busiest airport in the world transporting 59,784,876 passengers in 2007. 57,093,187 passengers passed through DFW Airport in 2008. In terms of land area, at 18,076 acres (7,315 ha), it is the largest airport in Texas, the second largest in the United States, behind Denver International Airport, and third largest in the world. It is the ninth busiest international gateway in the United States, and in Texas, behind Houston Intercontinental Airport. It is tied with Chicago O'Hare International Airport with the most runways, with seven. In 2006 the airport was named the Best Cargo Airport in the World according to the second edition of a survey. The airport, within the incorporated cities of Coppell, Euless, Grapevine, and Irving, serves 128 domestic destinations and 36 international, and is the largest and main hub for American Airlines (745 daily flights), and also the largest hub for American Eagle. Eighty five percent of all flights at Dallas/Fort Worth are operated by American Airlines. Delta Air Lines moved its Dallas/Fort Worth hub to Los Angeles International Airport in February 2005 in an effort to cut costs and avoid direct competition with American before eliminating it all together due to the oil price increases since 2003. The airline shrank operations from 258 daily nonstop flights to 21. The airport is often referred to by its IATA airport code, DFW. It is operated in many ways like a small city. It has its own post office, ZIP Code, and Public Services. The United States Postal Service gave the airport its own city designation, DFW Airport, TX.[8] The members of the airport's Board of Directors are appointed by the owner cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. The airport is inside the city limits of three other suburban cities, a situation that has led to legal battles over jurisdiction (see below). To help ensure future harmony with its neighbors, the DFW Airport Board includes a non-voting member ?? a representative chosen from the airport's neighbors (Irving, Euless, Grapevine, and Coppell) on a rotating basis. DFW is connected by shuttle bus to a commuter rail station just south of the airport. The Trinity Railway Express line serves both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth.
